There are three Rowan Awards for research achievement (award amounts contingent upon annual funding availability):

For example, a two page paper analyzing a newspaper article from a sociological perspective. Up to two awards of $50 each, contingent on presentation at the Annual Sociology Awards.
2.) Rowan Award for Advanced Achievement in Sociology - large written projects in a 300 or 400 level sociology class. For example, a ten page research paper with an extensive literature review. Up to two awards of $100 each, contingent on presentation at the Annual Sociology Awards.
3.) Rowan Award for Best Sociological Group Project - presentation or community service by three or more students in a 300 or 400 level sociology class. For example, a team teaching activity by four students who lead the class discussion. Another example would be three students who cooperatively design and complete a sociology internship.
